Geoffrey Allen Schneider was born on October 13, 1954, and after a courageous battle with cancer, went home to be with his Lord on May 9, 2021, where he was greeted by his parents, Lewis Lawrence Schneider and Verna Geraldine Boulton Schneider, and his sister, Katie Cooper, and daughter-in-law, Samantha Mitchell Booher.
Geoff was a lifelong resident of the area, spending most of his years “on the home place” in Calcutta. He was a 1973 graduate of Beaver Local High School.
He worked for 20 years at Sterling China (long before it became Sterling USA) and retired after another 20 years with Majestic Manufacturing where he “built fun” (amusement and carnival rides). He had also been a Resident Assistant at the Ezra House in East Liverpool, where most of the boys considered him as a dad.
Geoff had a love of music, so for a short time, was a part of a gospel quartet. He also sang with the Messiah Choir and East Liverpool’s Community Choir. He bowled with the men’s church league on Thursday nights at Tri-State Lanes.
Geoff was a member of the Oak Grove Church of Christ where he could be seen every Sunday greeting others with a handshake, a pat on the back, or a hug. He attended faithfully until his illness made it impossible the last few months.
Geoffrey was a son, brother, husband, dad, step-dad, foster dad, father-in-law, and grandpop. He is survived by:his wife, Jeane Hughes Booher Schneider; eight children: Michael Allen Schneider (Rose Mausen Schneider), David Harold Snyder, Steven Christopher Schneider, Samuel David Booher, Tiffany Booher Thompson (David Thompson), Bridgette Snyder Williams (Preston Williams), Angela Leigh Booher, and Andrew Joseph Miller (Jacob Claxton Miller); There are also 8 grandchildren: Alan, Melisa, and Amber Schneider, Alexander and Elizabeth Booher, Matthew and Hunter Thompson, and Adaline Williams. Geoffrey is also survived by his special nephew, Patrick David Miller, and special sister-in-law, Amy Snyder Gregory.
